The workshop for humor writing, human interest writing, networking and getting published

Erma Bombeck Wrighters' Workshop Banner


Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End, a one-woman show playing on stages around the country, is bringing Erma’s wit and humanity to a new generation.

Audiences are discovering what we already know: Erma’s writing is timeless.

This summer, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park extended the play’s run a remarkable three times. In the Cincinnati production, Barbara Chisholm reprised the role of Erma from the play’s 2015 world premiere at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. Chisholm also gave a standing-ovation performance of Allison and Margaret Engel’s play at the 2016 Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop before 400 attendees, faculty and keynoters, and the Bombeck family.
